YES BUT HAVE YOU MOTHERFUCKING CONSIDERED JOSH HOLLOWAY

OR DANIEL DAE KIM 

FOR YOUR CROWLEY FACECLAIMS??????? 

I AM SO TIRED OF SEEING BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AND MARTIN FREEMAN EVERYWHERE. LET’S SHAKE IT UP A LITTLE, GOOD OMENS FANDOM. 

  • Teacher: How do you like men?
  • Me: *Thinks about Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Evans, Martin Freeman, Hugh Dancy, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Dylan O'brien,Andrew Garfield, Chris Pine, Josh Hutcherson, Robert Downey Jr etc...*
  • Me: *Sighs* You're not going to understand me

Why are

there SO many 

gorgeous actors in 

this world,

yet they all

are not only

so far out of

my age range,

but I have almost 

no chance of 

ever meeting them,

not to mention the fact

that most are happy

 with a partner of some sort

or are not of a sexual orintation

that works in my favor.

I know that you 

may not agree

with all of my hunky choices,

but that isn’t my point.

My point IS look at

 all of these beauties,

there are so many!

so why do all of the boys at my school look like

WHY?!?!?

I took FullMcInJosh’s bingo challenge and the only one to get a full bingo was Doom Guy, a character from the father of the FPS genre and had very little story and even less character building. 

Some of these aren’t even that fair and don’t take any context into account. A game like TF2 is supposed to be cartoony and unrealistic so it would make sense that he has incredibly large biceps. 

No patience for politics is an incredibly nebulous one as in many games, war IS the politics. A soldier fighting in a war that his superiors declared is no less ‘no patience for politics’ as a working class man dumping radioactive waste in the ground because his superiors wanted to pass over safety regulations is 'No patience for proper waste disposal’. Point is that a lot of the time the character doesn’t even have a say in the politics (like Heavy Weapons Guy) so I interpret it as the character deliberately choosing to fight even in the face of a peaceful option. Not surprisingly very few got that because in most games, there aren’t peaceful options. Not even in the cutscenes.

Only 2 characters were bald/had a crew cut. Heavy Weapons Guy and what I assumed to be a generic CoD soldier. That space more likely stemmed from what the person would think a male protagonist would look like rather than any decent sample of male protagonist. It’s even difficult to apply it to film and tv shows. 

As it turns out, very few of them are anti-heros. The person who made this bingo clearly thought it would be a given since it takes the place of the free space but when it comes to video games, only 2 characters apply. 

Arguably the most popular video game character ever, Mario, only takes up three spaces. Sonic takes 4, Kirby takes 2, and Link takes 6 assuming a fictional race can be “white”. superMeatBoy takes none. 

All of those examples are from games that aren’t First Person Shooters. The more generic the FPS (Bioshock Infinite, Doom, Heavy Weapons Guy specifically), the more squares are likely to be taken up. That’s partly because most FPSes involve a soldier of some sort. They also don’t want the character crying over every kill and will likely give that character a set of armor. And the list goes on for practical reasons for why FPS games would use some of those tropes. 

The point is, this is more an issue of game design than social justice. It has absolutely nothing to do with sexism and “hurr durr toxic masculinity!!!!” and everything to do with game companies being lazy and wanting to do the least amount of work but reap the maximum amount of profit. If game companies can move away from FPS games and not recycle the same gameplay mechanics in every genre of game, there won’t be so many examples of these tropes specifically being used over and over again. 

Jonathan McIntosh has demonstrated once again that he doesn’t play video games and probably doesn’t even watch any Let’s Plays.

  • Me as a child: Finding someone who's younger than me cute is creepy and finding someone who's older than me cute is weird and unrealistic.
  • Me as a teenager: I AM CAPABLE OF DROOLING OVER ANYONE AGES 15 TO 50.
